Newborn quilt for first Great-Grandchild
1 Attachment(s)
My granddaughter is due September 1st. She is having baby girl. I am soooo excited! I was so surprised when she said she was going to do a Care Bear theme. I purchased the the unfinished quilt top (32"x32") and put the rest together. I was going to put a label on it, but since she has "officially named" the baby twice, I may just put "???" on it! hahahaha
I have a yard another Care Bear fabric that I will put together hopefully this weekend. My only regret is that I didn't know how to sew when my granddaughter was born 22 years ago! Can you imagine?! I am on a sewing mission, 1 more quilt for the baby, 1-crocheted blanket, hooded towels, burp clothes(some with fabric, some embroidered), hand mittens, and crocheted booties, oh and I will try my hand at making her a skirt. A stocking is already made for the baby! Thanks for looking!!

Sweet! I didn’t know Care Bears were still around. My 34yo daughter used to love them when she was small!

Congrats on the great grandbaby! I know you must be excited!

Care Bear
My son (the grandfather to be) is 37 yrs old. I couldn't find any the fabric at the sewing stores, found some by luck on Etsy. Thank you for the warm wishes. I am really excited, I think we all are revved up to spoil!

I have a great grandson who will soon be 4. So much fun to have him around and he has a stack of quilts!❤️ Next will be a dinosaur quilt.. his new favorite thing. At Christmas time it was trucks and John Deere tractors. Lol. He keeps me busily sewing!

I can hear the excitement and know the feeling! I'm a new Nana and there is nothing like it!! My boys loved care bears when they were little. Such a cute line!!!
Oh yes, she will be spoiled! :)
Lovely baby quilt!!

How exciting! A new great grand baby!! Your quilt is lovely! And the mission you are on may not stop for years to come. My girls are in their mid 40's and played with Care Bears. They were all the rage back then. I am glad you were able to find some fabric. Thanks for sharing this joyful news and a lovely quilt.

Congratulations to the new parents and to you on the birth of the new grandchild. Happy days!
The little quilt is adorable.

Cute quilt and this baby will be the warmest baby ever with the blankets and quilts that are being made for her. Congratulations to you and to your granddaughter.

Thank you to all the kind wishes. These handmade things are such huge blessing. I agree with the child having multiple quilts. I've made several for my daughter and both my granddaughters. One can never have too many quilts! It's just an extra reminder of an "I love you so much" type of thing!!

Very cute baby quilt. Great Grandkids are wonderful.

the quilt is similar to the patterns I sometimes make. This is so precious and I'm sure the little one will love it. Made with love from great grandma
